Some sort of Elaeagnaceae?

JSchofieldDecember 30, 2012

I am trying to identify this shrub in my yard. It had flowers earlier in the year (small and white, i think). I haven't seen any berries on it. It is now the end of December in zone 6a and it is still green, as you can see. It has been thriving on the north side of the house, without being watered. We just moved into the house in April, but I know the shrub has been there for at least 7 years. It is around 4-5 feet tall, with a similar spread. I am at a complete loss identifying it with my very limited knowledge and would very much appreciate any help the community can give me.

Vitex agnus-castus? (opposite leaves)

I believe Choisya has opposite leaves, small white flowers and is evergreen. From what I've known about Vitex, it's deciduous and I don't think it would do well on the north side of a house since it likes full sun.

Here is a link that might be useful: Aztec Pearl
